Series debutant Terio Tamani scored in his first game against Russian Federation while Waisea Nacuqu scored Fiji's 4000th try in the history of the HSBC World Sevens Series.

Fiji celebrates a try by Paula Dranisinukula en-route to winning the Vancouver Sevens.

Australia topped their group with victories over New Zealand, Wales and Scotland on Saturday and then edged out Spain 7-5 in their quarter-final on Sunday.

Coach Gareth Baber said that hadn't dented their confidence.

NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 29- Kenya's hopes of a third consecutive Main Cup final appearance at the world Sevens Series ended in defeat as they went down 24-12 to South Africa in the Quarter Finals of the Singapore Sevens early Sunday morning.

"That was my choice in terms of the squad that we took and I thought that they stood up well and in a one-off tournament in Singapore I haven't got any issues with this squad that we're taken and think we can go out there and produce those performances again".

The boks continued to pound the Kenyans and a missed pass saw Soyizwapi dot down his second try of the morning and the twos were added for a 17-0 lead at half time.

In Pool C, overall series leaders and defending champions South Africa have welcomed back a number of experienced players into their squad, including their all-time leading points scorer Cecil Afrika, after choosing to field a younger side at the last event in Hong Kong.
